Berkeley Pre-School

Support offered for children with special educational needs and disabilities

Berkeley Pre-school is located on the premises of Berkeley Academy. We follow the Early Year Foundation Stage and particularly concentrate on children's social development, enabling them to make friends, be independent as well as sharing and turn taking. 

We have many years of experience working with children and their families. We  provide inclusive pre-school and promote equal opportunities for all children. We have a safe,caring and happy environment in which children can learn and develop their confidence. We enhance children's self-esteem by providing them opportunities in order for them to make their own choices. We promote healthy eating and physical literacy in our setting. We are accredited Let's Talk Together setting, which extends children's language  and all the practitioners are skilled in promoting positive interaction strategies. 

We are proud to have sensory room which provides multi-sensory experiences to all children. We have a spacious outdoor play area which includes a safe surface, grass area and a sand pit. 

Parents have the opportunity to involve in their children's learning and come along to the events organised by staff.

We offer settling in period and take children who are not toilet trained.
